From Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology (London, 1880)

A'BIA ('Abia), the nurse of Hyllus, a son of Heracles. She built a temple of Heracles at Ira in Messenia, for which the Heraclid Cresphontes afterwards honoured her in various other ways, also by changing the name of the town of Ira into Abia. (Paus. iv. 30. § 1.)


An original e-text for everything2. That is, I sat down and copied the text from the book (in the public domain) - it is not available on any other web site. All Greek words are transliterated into Latin characters. I seem to be noding a bunch of this, starting from the beginning. Would be great if I could find some decent OCR software for MacOS 9.
